    I can't read symbols on my dragon floor mats (wonder if it is a polite term) and my wife thinks the floor mats need to be more tasteful. They were custom trimmed for the accelerator and footrest. It's 102 outside this month and the rubber gets really hot. I deserve to get carpet floor mats to keep my soles cooler and harmony in the family. My soles should be really hot by the end of August when the contest ends...

    Rough!

    Pic of my floormat. I'm a machinist and track through cutting oil/coolant/sanding grit/welding slag/ your basic shop spooge. My poor mat has taken the brunt. I also drive my MINI kinda hard:ihih: (notice the holes forming) They do get cleaned but it doesn't take long for them to look flogged again.

    I need a new set because these are the only things on the MINI I haven't tried to Modify, paint, stick, cut open, on the car. A new set would keep me from attempting somethime out of Titanium (as MiniMaybe would say).

    The original driver's mat in my 2005 Cooper S has a hole right in the middle....apparently from where I have rested my heel for the past 6+ years. Yesterday my heel went right through the hole as I was trying to brake, the mat got all bunched up under the pedals, and I was doing some fancy maneuvering trying to stop the car and pull the mat out..... needless to say, I really need some new front mats!

    hole in the floormat

    [​IMG]

    As I hope you can see, I'm really in need of a replacement mat for the driver's side.

    [​IMG]

    Lately, I've been using fleece-backed material taped to the bottom so my foot doesn't go through.

    [​IMG]

    But there's still a rut on the top side, where my heel seems to settle.

    [​IMG]

    I'm guessing that's not very safe.

    I hope you'll consider my entry. If I'm not careful, could this hole consume my MINI?

    I have to post some photos. Heralding the gift of Grace offered to me by MINICONCARNE.

    Coolest thing ever- I came home and found the fedexed MINI Mats!!!! MINICONCARNE, you are the BEST! I am going through some life changes right now and in the process of moving, so I apologize deeply for dragging my heels on this. But my heels LOVE the 5-speed dance on the new Floor Mats! I promise I will post pics, they are gorgeous and factory fresh. And such an improvement.

    I'm humbled. Thanks again MINICONCARNE. What a fabulous thing you did!!!!!! What a great community this is!!!!

    To recap...

    miniconcarne won the floormats, however he had recently purchased a set. In a selfless act of good will he then sent the set he won to Louispup, eating the postage costs too.

    Ain't MINI folk great...
